lyrics

Smoke:
Hello my dear, might I have word?
For I know your pain and what you yearn for
A fattened life, full of what you desire
That's precisely, why I'm here for hire now (girls)

Temptresses + Smoke:
Tell us just what you need
You don't even have to bend a knee
Engage us in your story please
Sign and you'll be on the stocks of ease

Smoke:
Right here's a tonic, drink it up
And in three hours you'll find this ain't just luck
For I've dealt with pharaoh’s and I've made kings
Devoured up their sadness and replaced with treasured dreams

Temptresses + Smoke:
Tell us just what you need
You don't even have to bend a knee
Engage us all in your story please
Sign and you'll be on the stocks of ease (woo)

Smoke:
Now I sense you (ya) hostile but please don't tense
You'll soon be knighted with all the brightest men
At the top of the hill with all the divine
This is where this product lets you stride

Now we know just what you need
More than happy to oblige but dearest please
Jot your name down, sign off on these
Tonics will lead you to fortune
Frolicking through diamonds and pearls
All you've got to do is sign this
John, no worries, it's a thrill
